I found these holes (as in the pictures) and wanted to know if it supports disk brakes or not. I am upgrading the whole thing and calculating a budget.

Thank you in advance :)

    From the looks of it it’s so old that disc brakes didn’t even exist yet.

  • Yeah.. It is! We are talking 20+ years old (may be more..) I'm sending it to a local shop, he promised to upgrade it as much as possible xD Thanks

    Just don’t let them weld on disc brake mounts, the front fork is probably not strong enough. And be aware that the rear wheel dropouts are probably too narrow for modern freewheel hubs.

  • Ok, @Michael. You say it doesn't even support multiple speed cassette thing? or just the modern "freewheel hub" (You can see I am not really an expert 😅)

    In fact, I'd recommend against doing any upgrades to this bike at all. Buying the bike you want would give you way more value for your money, especially if you find a nice deal on a used one.

No. Those eyelets are for mounting mudguards or fenders.
